The CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel Development) Trust is working with the Careers and Enterprise Company on a mission to help every young person to find their best next step through the inspiring work of pro-bono Enterprise Advisers.

What do Enterprise Advisers do?

Enterprise Advisers work directly with local school leadership teams to help them to build and develop their careers programme and connect them with local employers to open up interest, engagement and the limitless career possibilities on offer for young people.

How can I help?

We’re looking for business professionals who can use their experience to support schools and colleges to develop their career plans and approaches and make a real difference to how young people think about their futures.

What are the CIPD Trust looking for?

Ideal candidates for this role are experienced business professionals from any sector or professional background who are committed and passionate about upskilling young people and can use their experience to develop career plans and programmes in a local school. You’ll need to be comfortable working with a school’s senior leadership team and able to commit 1-5 hours a month over the course of an academic year (with the option of conducting some work remotely).

How do I apply?

Register your interest today or email the team at enterpriseadviser@cipd.co.uk with any questions.

Mission Statement

We want to create a world of work that's more human. By changing hearts and minds about the purpose of work, the value of people and the role of people professionals, we'll help ensure that work creates value for everyone.


The CIPD Trust supports people getting into work, getting back into work and developing in work by harnessing the knowledge, expertise and talents of the people profession. We want to support more people to improve their skills, raise their confidence and ultimately reach their potential.

We empower people, whatever their industry, sector or experience, to seek and secure opportunities in work. Our members and industry partners are uniquely placed as experts in providing mentoring, coaching and advice to improve working lives. We want to create a more diverse profession to build a fairer world of work. From financial support, coaching and development programmes to matching up-and-coming leaders with HR Directors and Chief People Officers we are enabling under-represented groups to grow and progress.

For 2023, in addition to our existing programmes we have identified a number of key groups via our ongoing policy and research, with whom we are keen to pilot some of our activity. These groups are:

  • Refugees/displaced people
  • Individuals with experience of the criminal justice system
  • Older workers looking to return to the workforce

And, we are really keen to work alongside employers who have experience or an interest in supporting these groups, to share learnings and inform our own programme development. If you are keen to get more involved in the work of the CIPD Trust, do get in touch.
